Harry Styles dreams of launching a film career.

The 21-year-old singer reportedly plans to make the permanent move to Hollywood and intends to network with movie industry bosses during the awards season once his band One Direction go on a break next year.

A source shared: ''Harry is off the leash now in terms of his film career.

''He is moving to LA for good and giving his dreams a real chance of success. There he can mix his music career and work with producers while holding movie meets.''

Harry has not been allowed to pursue movie roles during his time with One Direction, but with the chart-topping group set to take a break next year, there's now a window of opportunity for him to indulge his own ambitions.

Another source explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Awards season will be the perfect time for him to hit up agents and producers. Big companies have been chasing him for a long time but he was locked into doing his 1D music career. Previously agents were told that Harry could only be booked with the band.''
